Rules to help the community

  • To reduce spam and the number of abusive users, each member's profile must be approved by an Oh My Japan employee.
  • Free members can only contact two new people per week. This helps ensure that you receive messages from people who are actually interested in you.
  • The first message that one member sends to another must be at least 200 characters long; this prevents impersonal messages like "Hi. Let's meet." from being sent.
